Senior Clinical Fellow
Gabriel comes from Malaysia and read medicine at the University of Nottingham. After graduating in 2002, he had worked in Nottingham, Derby and Taunton before achieving his MRCP in 2005. He commenced his neurology training in Radcliffe Infirmary, Oxford in 2006 and later in Newcastle. He joined the Stroke Prevention Research Unit in 2010 and before returning to Newcastle in 2013 to complete his neurology training. He finished his DPhil in July 2014.
His research focused on systematic review of population-based stroke incidence studies, clinical epidemiology of AF-related vascular events, and methods to improve secondary prevention using prolonged cardiac monitoring and biomarkers.
He is currently working as a Consultant Neurologist at the Great Western Hospital, Swindon and also continues to build on the research from his DPhil.
